Childs came in fourth place in the Channel 5 series Celebrity Big Brother 8 in 2011, and in 2014, she participated in the Channel 4 series The Jump. Childs returned to The Only Way Is Essex in 2020.

Early life

Childs was born on 7 June 1990 in Barking, London, but relocated to Brentwood, Essex. She attended Raphael Independent School, where she was head girl. She left the school with four GCSE qualifications.


Childs rose to fame in 2010 after appearing in the ITV2 reality series The Only Way Is Essex. She later signed to Can Associates management agency. As a model, she has posed for the fashion magazine Vogue. Childs put her name to a ghost-written column for New! magazine, and presented a regular fashion segment on the ITV series This Morning. In July 2011, she was named Personality of the Year at the National Reality TV Awards.

From December 2011 to January 2012, Childs appeared in her own reality series, titled It's All About Amy, broadcast on Channel 5. The series was cancelled after one series due to low ratings. In February 2012, Childs competed in an episode of Let's Dance for Sport Relief alongside cousin Harry Derbidge. She later participated in a celebrity special of The Bank Job on Channel 4 in March 2012. In 2020, Childs was a main cast member on the eighth series of the E4 reality programme Celebs Go Dating. Later that year, it was announced that she would be returning to The Only Way Is Essex after nine years, making her return in the twenty-sixth series, alongside cousin Harry Derbridge.
